Description:
The European Network of Health Promoting Schools promotes a philosophy of health promoting that reflects a holistic approach. The progress of Irish schools, in the years 1993 - 1996, as a member of the European Network is described in two reports: <a) The Irish Network of Health Promoting Schools - a Collaborative Report. (Saoirse Nic Gabhainn. Cecily Kelleher - Centre for Health Promotion, N.U.I., Galway and the Steering Committee of the Irish Network of Health Promoting Schools). (b) The Implementation of the European Network of Health Promoting Schools in Different National Contexts (Parsons et al. Centre for Health Education and Research, Canterbury Christ Church College). The enthusiasm generated at national and school level is highlighted in both reports. The importance placed on the development of school structures. the implementation of timetabled SPHE, staff development. teaching methods and parent involvement are all highlighted. The benefits of creating a supportive social and physical environment and developing community links are clearly visible. It becomes apparent that changes in feelings. attitudes. values, competencies and health promoting behaviours is a long-term objective dependant on getting the school setting right.
